iTunes Match - Re-activation = Re-upload?

Hi,

I used to have iTunes Match, i didn't renew my subscription.

I am now without my computer, meaning, I'm without iTunes.

My question is... If I sign back up to iTunes Match, will it use the library I used to have 4months ago? Or will it require me to upload my iTunes and Match again??

Thanks

That is a tough call. I think I saw somewhere that said 30 days was the retention limit. But I could be misremembering that.

Apple explicitly says it will no longer be available and my guess is that after 4 months, it's probably gone.

However, that's all guess work and I could find anything on Apple's support site to indicate when they actually purge your data. Although I would have to think they want to wait at least 30 days to allow for renewal billing issues to be taken care of.

You could try asking Apple.
